As a female veteran, donated when this museum was still being built. There isn't any noticeable advertisement when you enter Arlington, and it isn't mentioned on the tram tours. Too bad, because it's worthwhile and should be seen.

This is not a major museum but a very nice one with exhibits of interest. If you visit Arlington Cemetery, stop by and have a look. Plus nice rest rooms and AC in the summer! You can spend a little or a lot of time,...More

Our military reunion group had a luncheon here & there are many displays. It's pretty plain on the outside, but pleasant inside. We didn't go up,but were told there are fantastic views of Washington on the upper, glassed-in floor. It's good to remember the women...More

The Women in Military Service Memorial is close to the entrance of Arlington and pays tribute not just to the nurses and behind-the-scenes women in the early days of armed conflict but also the women who have served on the front lines as well.

I recommend taking the time to read all the displays at this memorial. Vast amounts of history about a segment of our military service members population that is often overlooked or forgotten.

A special place where one can pay their respects to all the women who have sacrificed their lives in the service of the nation.

The cvasi quitness and respectful mourning is making you think that we should be more humble and thankful for everything that miltary women sacrifice! God bless them! Neculai

I cannot say enough the need to visit the Women in Service Memorial. There are always exhibits on rotation but the permanent displays remind us all of the service and commitment that women have made in service to our nation over generations.

This was a very interesting memorial and inside there were some good exhibits. It was nicely laid out as well and there were nice restrooms.
